No one is sure where St. Patrick was born but a strong tradition asserts he was a local man, raised on the banks of the River Clyde in Old Kilpatrick. It was from here that he was kidnapped by pirates and taken as a slave to Ireland. The rest is history....

This walk takes in a visit to the ancient St. Patrick's Well, the end of the Antonine Wall which marked the furthest frontier of the Roman Empire, and the scenic Forth and Clyde Canal. All this is flanked by the teeming wildlife of the Clyde estuary and overshadowed by the impressive bulk of the Erskine Bridge. What more could you desire?

Walk distance is about 2 miles on good, surfaced paths. Duration should be about 1.5 - 2 hours. Trainers suitable. Please dress according to the weather.

Additional Dates: 25 August 2018, 01 September 2018, 08 September 2018, 15 September 2018, 22 September 2018, 29 September 2018
